Looking for slippers

Hi EFers

The question's in the title - have you seen warm slippers around in stores lately? I need to acquire some ASAP.

Thank you for any leads!

Re: Looking for slippers

Landi did have some synthetic 'fur' lined croc lookalikes - maybe that's more the look you're after?

No idea what they look like

I might just have to go all Homer Simpson and head to Dosenbach


the only ones I've run across - 14.90 IIRC

Re: Looking for slippers

Slipper socks are also quite warm. They might be a bit easier to find. I like them as you can put them in the washing machine.

If you do not have underfloor heating then you may still feel the cold through them which might also be the problem with the style of slippers above.

If you can find Isotoners ( maybe Dosenbach) these are quite warm and comfy.

These look sooo comfy! Shame they don't have my size anymore. These slippers don't seem to be on the UK site or I'd order them from there, especially as delivery is only £10 and their selection is huge.

Re: Looking for slippers

Genuine wool ones at Wednesday markets at Kreutzplatz. Bought a pair each for hubby and I. They are comfy, warm, and you can whack them in the washing machine.

Re: Looking for slippers

Ugg boots are a good option if you have a big budget.

Re: Looking for slippers

Have seen them at the following shops:
Ikea, Manor, Migros, Dosenbach.

If you live in an apartment, do check the sole of the slippers! I had some nice fluffy slippers in the UK, but I can't use them here, as the hard sole are a bit noisy at night (plus I probably walk like an elephant)

Aaahhhh those were the days! When comfort/warmth was not important as looks! Now-a-days I slop-slop around in my boot style insulated wooly Tschibo slippers! (I think I bought the mens instead of the ladies style! but o/h still loves me anyway)

Isotoners are excellent - very comfortable and fully machine washable (very important).

I got mine in Migros; they even had the (extremely large) size I require (call me Longshanks).

Re: Looking for slippers

Just found an unfamiliar pair under my bed whilst doing the weekly tidy up.

Can pop them in the post if they happen to be yours.

Dark blue mocassins!
